La Estacion - Waukesha, WI

La Estacion wasn't where I expected to be, outside the downtown area rather than in it. That worked out great and parking here was plentiful and easier to deal with than in downtown.

Brunch was on our mind. The papaya juice was thick with gelatinous chunks but it didn't seem like it was real papaya chunks.

Cheese Enchilada, Grilled Chicken, Oven Baked Chicken, Tamale Oxaca (something like that), Carne Asada, Spanish Potatoes, Spanish Rice. Papaya Juice.  The outstanding item was the baked chicken which was moist, tender, and flavorful. The carne asada was the second best item with its rich smoky flavorful but didn't quite hit the mark as it a bit dryer and tough. The least favored was the grilled chicken which was either overcooked or sat under the heating lamp too long. The tamale was on the flat side.

Carne Asada, Cactus Salad, Shrimp in Spicy Sauce, Oven Baked Chicken. The shrimp is made to order at the shrimp station. They aren't kidding when they say spicy sauce. It was't super spicy but it was spicier than the typical Midwest palate would take.

A number of dessert options were also available but passed to maintain the girlish figure.

At $16, the brunch hit the wallet hard.  A better price point would be $13. The service was less than stellar with the waiter rarely making an appearance and with a slight air of snootiness.

Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. Ephesians 6:10-11
